Biovet offers a new test for Canine Vaccine titer. This test has been recommended by the WSAVA VACCINATION GUIDELINES GROUP* for: Reducing the number of automatic triennial core revaccinations for adult dogs Determining whether a puppy has responded to vaccination Testing of newly adopted adult dogs of unknown vaccination history A single sample is used […]


In the past few months, we have developed several real-time PCR (qPCR) tests in multiplex format. Multiplex tests can detect multiple agents in the same reaction. With current equipment, we are limited to a maximum of 4 agents per multiplex test. One of the main advantages of multiplex testing is to reduce the cost of […]


Biovet is pleased and proud to announce that its agri-food laboratory has been accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) and now conforms with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2017. Biovet is thus expanding its range of services, particularly with the acquisition of 3M™ Molecular Detection System which offers faster results than other previous methods […]


Biovet is proud to announce that its serology laboratory has been certified by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV) Antibody Test Kit, ELISA method (SOP-SE-036). This is the ELISA method required by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to establish health certificates to export swine to certain […]


Biovet is proud to announce that it now offers a Next-Generation DNA sequencing Microbial Test. A partnership with MiDOG, LLC which has developed those tests will be performed in their laboratory located in California. This Microbial Test provides complete and accurate identification of bacterial and fungi pathogens to guide the design of targeted and accurate […]


First commercial ELISA kit for detecting APP13 antibodies * Swinecheck APP13 major advantage is its excellent sensitivity. Porcine pleuropneumonia (PPP), caused by Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (APP), leads to high economic losses in affected swine herds worldwide. A remarkable feature of APP is that its virulence greatly varies depending on the isolates. This results in clinical situations […]


Several cases of polioencephalomyelitis caused by Porcine sapelovirus (PSV) have been recently reported in Québec herds. Porcine sapelovirus (PSV) is an RNA virus in the family Picornaviridae. PSV is closely related to members of the Enterovirus genus and was previously known as porcine enterovirus 8 (PEV-8). Domestic and wild swine are the only known hosts […]

Results obtained in less than 90 minutes. Highly sensitive. Limit of detection (LOD) around 102 copies per reaction. Synthetic positive control allowing the setting […]


We want to inform you that we will soon offer a new real-time PCR (qPCR) test for detection of the PRRS virus. Like our previous qPCR, this test was developed in-house. The new test will still detect and differentiate type 1 (European) and 2 (North American) PRRS viruses in the same reaction. Although only type […]


The presence of certain bacteria in ready-to-use boar semen can detrimentally affect semen quality over time. Consequently, the use of contaminated semen may result in poor fertility (returns to oestrus) and endometritis (vaginal discharges) in recipient females. Most bacteria found in contaminated ready-to-use boar semen belong to the Enterobacteriaceae family. Among them, Serratia marcescens is […]
